Track Name: Steal The Silver
Ohh Ohh Ohh.......

Let me tell you 'bout a man I know
He's a loner he's a one-man show
Plays the guitar in the clubs and the bars
Never on the radio

He's seen the faces and changes
He's seen it ebb and flow
He's a sonic survivor
Reading from the Torridon Scrolls

Jeep Solid Said
Jeep Solid Said
Jeep Solid Said
Jeep Solid Said
“Now you’ve let me in the church, I aint gonna steal the silver”

Ohh Ohh Ohh

All the way from Caledonia
Landed up way down the Grove
Illegitimate son
Where he’s been nobody knows

Four and twenty years he’s forgotten
Now he’s back to claim his crown
You better watch out when “jeepster”
Comes to town

Track Name: Sleepsong
All I wanna do is sleep
All I wanna do is sleep
Sleepings where I wanna be
Sleepings where I wanna be

All I wanna do is lie
When the sunshine floods the sky
All I wanna do is lie……

Just sit and watch the river flow
Just sit and watch the river flow
Everything is going slow
Everything is going slow

All I wanna do is sleep
All I wanna do is sleep
Sleep…

Just sit and watch the river flow
Just sit and watch the river flow
Everything is going slow
Everything is going slow

All I wanna do is sleep
All I wanna do is sleep
Sleep…

Sleepings where I wanna be
Sleepings where I wanna be…………
Track Name: What it Takes
I can see you in my minds eye
Biggest smile upon your face
Jumping ‘round just like a mad fly
Over the place
Round the place

Carving form into the substance
Tracing lines across the sky
It’s all you ever really needed
To get by
To get by

So I’ll drink to you my friend
For our friendship never ends
And again we’ll celebrate with
What it takes
What it takes

Got your pictures in the hallway
And your sculptures in the yard
Shadows lurk in every doorway
Where you are
Where you were

And in the end it was so hard
For us all to contemplate
Laying down your tool and raging
At your fate….

So I’ll drink to you my friend
For our friendship never ends
And again we’ll celebrate with
What it takes
What it takes
Track Name: Coldheart
Someone pulled the shutters down
Someone pulled the shutters down
Can someone turn the light back on?

It was the part inside I tried to hide
That showed itself so freely
Only love could heal me

I sailed the oceans and the seas
Until the ship just fell apart
Giving in to my cold heart

With one eye on eternity
We’ll walk our twisted path
Hand in hand we’ll walk with love

You’ve got your God I’ve got mine
And we all have our cross to bear
We’ve got more that we can share

It was the part inside I tried to hide
That showed itself so freely
I knew, only love could heal me

From my cold heart…
Track Name: The Killing Breeze
Steaming in again was never that smart
Praying that in the end I’d land a big part in your life

My you’re looking old since, I last saw you
Your fantasy’s run cold since
I last saw you

Paint a face for the crowd
Sing it out
Say it loud
The Killing Breeze is killing me
Killing me

Don’t try to control
What you cant control
You’ve got to let it flow
You’ve got to let it flow

I should know
I should know
Pulls you down
When it blows
The Killing Breeze is killing me
Killing me

Paint a face for the crowd
Sing it out
Say it loud
The Killing Breeze is killing me
The Killing Breeze is killing me
Killing me.
Track Name: Place In The Sun
Now you’ve found your
Place in the sun
How you doing ?
How you getting on?

Are you saved?
Or are you still on the run?
From a thousand things you cant remember
Cant remember

How you craved your isolation
But you better be careful what you wish for
We carved our names into an ancient tree
To set our love down for eternity

Place in the sun
Place in the sun

Now you’ve found your
Place in the sun
You don’t need to wear protection

From the golden rays that fill our
Hearts and minds
With a thousand things we cant remember
Track Name: Lay of the Land
Everyday I see him walk the narrow streets
Looking for signs of harmony
You don’t need to look too far to see how things have changed
From the way they used to be

It’s in the
Lay of the land
Lay of the land

Nothing can last forever everybody knows
But it don’t look like progress to me
The wind carries all before it everything must go
In the tidal wave

It’s in the
Lay of the land
Lay of the land

Now I think I understand
Now I think I understand

The Law of the land
Law of the land

Now I think I understand
Now I think I understand

The Law of the land
Law of the land
Track Name: A Lasting Joy
You bring me a lasting joy
All the times when I
All the times when I didn’t know any better…..

You showed me love in the darkness
Like a guiding light
Just leading me on
With a smile a mile wide
Just leading me on
Just leading me on

With a smile a mile wide
Just leading me on ….
Track Name: Face in the Rock
Every now and then
I take another bend
On the ancient highway
Heading for the coast
It’s the place I love the most
On a clear day

Down by the waterfalls
I marvel at it all
As I go on my way
Singing to myself
Dreaming of the time
When we had to getaway

Face in the rock
I’m seeing
Won’t leave me alone

Face in the rock
I’m seeing
Carved out of stone….

She had a mind full of ideas
She shared with me
And just like all the best teachers
She gave for free

Face in the rock
I’m seeing
Won’t leave me alone

Face in the rock
I’m seeing
Carved out of stone
Won’t leave me alone

Leave me alone…please

Face in the rock
I’m seeing
Won’t leave me alone

Face in the rock
I’m seeing
Carved out of stone Won’t leave me alone
Track Name: Such a Small Thing
Such a small thing
To come between us
Such a small thing
To come between us

Don’t make your world so lonely
Don’t make your world so cold
If you’re looking for a fight
It’s for you only
So come on with me baby
Oh my lord if only..

Such a small thing
To come between us
Such a small thing
To come between us

Now we’ve blown it out of the water
Now we’ve blown it out of the water
Now we’ve blown it out of the water
Now we’ve blown it out of the water!

Now you know
All of my strengths
Now you know
You seen me in my weakness

It doesn’t make any sense
Ain’t it kinda sad when it ends like this

Now we’re blowing it out of the water
Now we’re blowing it out of the water
Now we’re blowing it out of the water
Now we’re blowing it out of the water

Such a small thing
To come between us
Such a small thing
To come between us

Now we’re blowing it out of the water
Now we’re blowing it out of the water
Now we’re blowing it out of the water
Now we’re blowing it out of the water
